Helsingborg is one of the oldest cities in the Nordic region and people have been living here since the 10th century.
The city’s long history is evident in the medieval remains found between great boulevards, colourful shopping streets, and pillars of culture such as the Concert Hall, City Theatre, and Dunkers kulturhus.
Helsingborg is located in Northwest Skåne, where the Öresund strait is at its narrowest and where Denmark and Helsingör are only 5 km away.
Sustainability is important for Helsingborg. The constant strive for better welfare and a sustainable future resulted in being named the most sustainable municipality in Sweden for four years in a row (2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020). In addition to that Helsingborg was crowned “City Center of the Year 2022”. City Center of the Year is awarded to the Swedish city or town that shows the greatest progress, development and renewal of the center.
